Taylor Cemetery
aka
Holloway-Taylor Cemetery

Sec. 3, Twp. 14 N, R. 13W


This is a photo of RaNae's father, Vondas Smith, standing at the "entrance" of the Taylor (Holloway-Taylor) Cemetery. I was anxious to use the picture as it should answer any questions about the "condition" of this cemetery and let anyone wishing to visit this cemetery know what to expect. RaNae and her parents have truly been bitten by the "Family History bug" - thank heavens for brave researchers willing to wade weeds and brush to check these old cemeteries. A big thanks for taking pictures and sharing your work.
This cemetery is located approximately 2 1/2 miles SE of Oxville in Scott County, Illinois and was partially read on 5 August 2002, by RaNae S. Vaughn and her parents, Vondas A. and Leah Ruth Ellis Smith.

Directions: It is located on property currently owned by the Schnake family in a grove of trees in the middle of a cornfield. From Highway 106 East, pass a restaurant called Buck & Jo's Too. Take the first road to the right after passing the restaurant on the left, and then take a left on Walnut Creek Road. Another left turn will need to be taken immediately at the Schnake home's driveway.
